Trash and street sweeping

Dear Editor:Our trash pick-up day is Monday, which means we have those Monday holidays when trash pick-up is delayed a day. That means the street sweeper and trash pick-up both occur on Tuesday. I have the January/February 2012 copy of "Downey Today" which we received at the first of the year. It lists the 2012 holiday street sweeping and trash collection schedule. There is a paragraph that states that on a few of the holidays, trash collection and street sweeping are on the same day. It requests that, on those days, the trash barrels be placed up on the curb so the street sweeper can sweep unhindered. We have done this on those days and have had no problem with the trash pickup or street sweeping. Suzanne Dodd Downey
